Temple History :

The Malliyoor Sree MahaGanapathy Temple in Kottayam district, Kerala is the sacred abode of the all – encompassing the divine presence of Lord Ganesha and also a coveted destination of lakhs of pilgrims from all over India. The endearing elephant – headed Lord Ganesha, the son of Siva and Parvathy, enjoys the prime place among all the gods of the Hindu pantheon. He is Parabrahma incarnate, the God of Wisdom and Learning, the Remover of all Obstacles and is worshiped first, any other god. The Malliyoor Sree MahaGanapathy Temple is incomparable in the conception of the presiding deity as Vaishnava Ganapathy, with a young Sree Krishna seated on the lap of Lord Ganesha.

This unique and powerful infusion of the Vaishnava spirit in the Ganesha idol is the supreme achievement of the devoted penance of the much-revered main priest of the temple, Brahmasree Bhagavathahamsam Malliyoor Sankaran Nampoothiri. Today thousand of devotees flock to the feet of VasihnavaGanapthy at Malliyoor seeking eternal salvation from the bonds of Karama and solace from the evils of Kaliyuga.
